Every morning, I wake up and spend around 20 minutes on my phone doing the following:

  • Checking the time
  • Checking the traffic from home to school
  • Checking the news
  • Checking the weather

If I continue with this routine, I will spend almost a year of my life checking the time, traffic, news and weather in the mornings.

I needed a solution that would provide me with all this information in a shorter and more efficient way. Therefore, I coded my own smart alarm clock that does those tasks for me.

Features of my Smart Alarm Clock

Below I have listed all the features my smart alarm…

We all have heard about AI assistants such as Jarvis from Iron Man and the real-life versions such as Amazon Alexa and Google Home. But what if you could make your own? Well, with python and some speech recognition magic, you can!

Making your own personal assistant allows you to add customized features specific to your needs allowing you to live a more efficient lifestyle!

What Is A Virtual Assistant?

Virtual assistants have programmed applications that recognize human language and commands which then result in the program performing tasks. Virtual assistants typically perform simple jobs for users, such as adding tasks to a calendar; providing…

Even though Artificial Intelligence (A.I) is regarded as the next big thing and a new and emerging technology, it has been around for longer than you think. Many films such as 2001: A Space Odyssey and the Iron Man film series have incorporated A.I into their productions further popularizing it and making it a household term. Most people have now heard about this revolutionary technology and much research has been conducted in this field.

A.I is already being incorporated into many industries such as transportation, education, manufacturing, online shopping, communication, sports, media, healthcare, politics, banking and finance. A.I …


Imagine, only a decade ago we would have to get up to adjust the thermostat or would have to get up to turn the lights off. Yet now, with a few taps on our phones, or with the simple words “Hey Alexa!” we can do everything without moving an inch. This is all done through the Internet of Things (IoT). IoT is being used commercially in major corporations and by the average person. This emerging technology is already larger than we know and it is only going to keep growing.

This is what happens when Quantum Computing and AI are merged and born out of their marriage is a child named Quantum Artificial Intelligence.

The human species started with fire, sticks and our brain. As we evolved, the fire turned into power plants and the sticks became nuclear weapons. But our brain has achieved the biggest evolution.

For the past 60 years, the power of computers has been growing exponentially. To put this into perspective, the most recent iPhones are 100,000 times more powerful than the Apollo 11 computer.

The Basics of Computers

Computers contain computer chips. These computer chips have many modules. …


Introduction

I first heard about gene editing when I was in grade 6 (2018). One of my classmates gave a presentation on how with gene editing, people can design how their babies will look like. At that time, I thought that was the limit of gene editing. But, in 2019, I did a project on examples of gene mutations in movies and how they could be replicated in real life. My partner and I took the example of Captain America. In the movie, Captain America becomes instantly taller and stronger by taking a serum. Of course, this serum does not exist…
